Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH was the place and mid-May was the date of this year’s Rock On The Range Festival, which celebrated its seventh year by expanding to three days.
Once again Logic Systems Sound and Lighting of St. Louis handled audio and lighting production for the 105,000-plus in attendance, who were treated to music over three stages by Love & Death, Hollywood Undead, Buckcherry, Cheap Trick, Korn, Pop Evil, All That Remains, Halestorm, Papa Roach, Three Days Grace, Smashing Pumpkins, Sevendust, Bush, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and many others.
Logic Systems brought in new NEXO STM line arrays for the main stage, including 36 STM M46 top boxes, 36 B112 bass boxes, 36 S118 subs, 10 NUAR racks, 12 GEO-Ts, and 12 CD-18s. A Yamaha PM5D-RH was used as the primary monitor console for the main stage.
“The overall response to the new NEXO STM system by guest engineers was very good,” states Chip Self, president of Logic Systems Sound and Lighting. “Everyone was duly impressed by the sound quality and the overall SPL achieved with so few boxes. The rigging on the STM is exceptional, and very fast. We were able to fly each side of the main PA with just four crew in less than 20 minutes.”
In related Logic Systems news, the company brought in its NEXO GEO T rig for the Carolina Rebellion Festival that took place in the beginning of May at the Rock City Campground located at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
